Meghan McCain and her obnoxious “beer” heiress mother has it coming. Both of their sanctimonious portrayals of Republican values actually make me sick – almost as much as the flip-flopping of the sometimes conservative Senator John McCain.
Now, I can barely tolerate the elder Senator because he has endured a lot for this country, but those two – well, MEH…..
On to the quotes:
Palin writes that the first time she met the 26-year-old daughter of Sen. John McCain, she “ignored us during the entire visit.” This was just before Senator McCain introduced Sarah Palin as his running mate. Palin adds that she “had a sneaking suspicion I might need to watch my back.”
“Every time we saw Meghan, she seemed to be constantly checking us out, comparing my family to hers and complaining,” she writes. “Oh the complaining.”
Cindy McCain, the senator’s wife, also rubbed the eldest Palin daughter the wrong way.
“I’d never seen people with so much Louis Vuitton luggage, so many cell phones, and so many constant helpers to do hair and makeup,” Palin writes, adding that the would-be first lady looked “like a queen” and held “herself like royalty.”
Palin writes that she was shocked when the senator’s wife offered to be a godmother to her unborn baby: “I had just met her and I wondered why she wanted any type of guardianship over my child.”
Bristol will be on Good Morning America to promote her book on Monday as she makes the rounds of the book circuit. Somehow I think there will be a response from Cindy and Meghan McCain prior.
Or, will Senator McCain urge restraint?
Representative John Murtha (D-PA), October 15 and 20, 2008
Is John Murtha in trouble?
Two veteran warriors battling to represent the 12th Congressional District appear locked in the closest race in the district in years.
Democratic Rep. John Murtha leads retired Army Lt. Col. William Russell by a little more than 4 percentage points, within the Susquehanna Poll’s 4.9-point margin of error. The poll of 400 likely voters was conducted for the Tribune-Review on Tuesday, amid uproar over Murtha’s statement that some of his constituents are racist.
Time for Murtha to retire.
Change this seat to likely GOP pick-up.

Democrat Representative John Murtha of Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania Congressman has sort of apologized
for his comments he made yesterday:
Democratic Rep. John Murtha said Wednesday his home base of western Pennsylvania is racist and that could reduce Barack Obamaâ€™s victory margin in the state by 4 percentage points.
The 17-term Democratic congressman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in a story posted Wednesday on its Web site: â€œThere is no question that western Pennsylvania is a racist area.â€
Murtha said it has taken time for many Pennsylvania voters to come around to embracing a black presidential candidate, but that Obama should still win the state, though not in a runaway.
In a separate interview posted Wednesday on the Pittsburgh Tribune-Reviewâ€™s Web site, Murtha said Obama has a problem with votersâ€™ racial attitudes in western Pennsylvania that could trim his winning margin on Nov. 4.
In a statement released by his offices today, the long-serving
Democratic lawmaker apologizes for making the comment yesterday to a
Pittsburgh newspaper that West PA was a â€œracist areaâ€, but not for the
overall description of Western Pennsylvania.
Statement from Rep. John Murtha (D-PA)
â€œI apologize for making the comment that â€˜Western Pennsylvania is a racist area.â€™
â€œWhile we cannot deny that race is a factor in this election, I believe
weâ€™ve been able to look beyond race these past few months, and that
voters today are concerned with the policy differences of our two
candidates and their vision for the future of our great country.
â€œSenator Obama has shown sound judgment and has presented us with a
change from the failed policies of George Bush and John McCain. I
believe he will win both Pennsylvania and the White House.â€
John Murtha’s time to retire is at hand. What an embarassment.
